FRANNY D’ANGELO For the press
Dear Franny the shopaholic: I so enjoy reading your article every week in The Press. I don’t know if you can help me, but I hope you can point me in the right direction.
I have a ceramic soap dish attached to my bathroom wall that cannot be removed. So I’ve used the attached soap dish for many years, and it’s worn and broken. It is so small that I find it difficult to replace it. You are so good at finding the unusual, I hope you can help me! I would appreciate any advice you may have. —Shelly
Dear Shelley: My guess would be to find a ceramic studio in your area, which you didn’t include in your letter, and make one the exact size you need. I emailed you a fabulous tile guy from Ocean City. He said to text him and send him your photos. He can help you.
Dear Franny the shopaholic: My outdoor cushions are all faded and beaten. Offers ? —Karen Tilman
